What happens when you barricade ten comedians in a room for fifty hours? You get twisted minds fueled by caffeinated hysteria writing jokes that may or may not mimic the sleep-deprived love child of 30 Rock and Saturday Night Live.
Killing My Lobster usually spends a good ten weeks on a show. So a mere fifty hours is laughable - at least, so they hope. Writers, actors, filmmakers, and musicians all contribute their own brand of funny for a new type of sketch variety show. Contributors include KML veterans like local playwright Peter Sinn Nachtrieb and special guests like KFOG's Peter Finch, the Tequila Whisperer, and vaudevillian indie folk band, The Bengsons.
An experiment in letting talented people run with whatever punchy and exhaustion-blurred comedy-in-the-raw they can devise, KMLZ only runs for one night. So if you want to see what the brains behind Coffee Wars and The Phone invent when they’re on deadline, check it out.
June 25, 7 and 10 p.m. Z Space, 450 Florida Street. Tickets are $20 at 800-838-3006 or brownpapertickets.com.
